I can't do it, I've never been able to do, it's basically just one huge fail whenever I try. I just moved my horse and there's no mounting block here. I didn't know it was possible for a barn to function without a handy dandy mounting block, but once I got over the shock of it, I realized that I would either have to buy my own block or learn to mount from the ground finally. I chose option B because I felt like being challenged that day, I guess.
But here's the problem - I'm only 5 foot and I'm not flexible. My horse isn't that big, but the stirrups are still chest level and there is no way my leg is getting that high. I guess I could drop that stirrup, but then it seems like I would be putting a lot of extra strain on his back.
Any tips on learning to get on from the ground??
